Guess Who


Pavarotti without a beard is almost unrecognizable at first glance. 1964 in Moscow. I have no idea who's playing the piano with their elbows for accompaniment.

Really when someone doesn't understand after that its up to other visitors that they will assist, so here it occurs.

I'm off to the hometown of Puccini next week to escape the English summer, will evade all opera though.

I see now why he grew a beard.

Sort of reminds me of Raoul Julia.

Best Gomez Adams ever.

Sipp - can you block Vanderleun from this one - unless you're deliberately throwing him a softball...

You know my first thought was, "Yeah that guy's good and all, but what he really needs is about 80 pounds, a beard, and a soaking wet handkerchief..."

There is no mistaking who that is once you hear that voice - we were given a marvelous gift for so many years - he and Placido, what abundance we had.

Sigh. Oh how I adored Pavarotti. I used to lock myself in the bathroom (so I could do girl stuff in peace) and play him at top volume on my jam box. And my son would sob right on cue in Vesti la Giubba---just to mock me. He was such a darling little shit (and now he's 42!).
